“My great concern is not whether you have failed, but whether you are content with your failure.”
Abraham Lincoln

Your action for today is to review a recent success you’ve had and see if you owe some of that success to a failure from your past.

 

 

 

 

 

“Let’s go up to the top of the Tone Scale and take a look and we find out its causation is by postulate. …

“So you say, ‘All right. Now, we’re going to reform the habits of the Philadelphia police force and change the force utterly and completely.’ Not ‘we are,’ you can say, ‘I am.’

“Don’t bother setting a time limit on it. … You just go ahead and do it! And if you’re strong and tough enough, you would simply postulate that it was going to happen and it would occur.

“And downscale from that you’d have to go into action and make it happen—and it would occur. And downscale from that, you would say, ‘I wish it’d happen’—and it wouldn’t occur. And downscale from that you’d say, ‘Well, somebody ought to.’”
